“Run with the Bulls, or be trampled by them?”
Today is a special day for many reasons. As many of you know, we are going to bring brand new TAUREN MARINES into the ranks today with a promotion ceremony. What you might not have known, is that we are saying goodbye to one of the greatest Marine I have ever had the privilege of wading through battle with.
LT KVIN STORMSPEAK, POST!
I met LT Stormspeak a long, long time ago. I remember the ride we took with the Terran, the one that took us away from Mulgore and into the Great Beyond for what we thought would be the first and last time. That ship took us deep into space; deep into the heart of the enemy; deep into the darkness within our own lost souls. But through it all, I have been able to rely on LT Stormspeak for anything – ANYTHING. The Corps owes its existence and its structure to the XO, and we will never forget it.
Today, he retires. He has lived a lifetime of war and bloodshed. It’s time for him to move on, to find new pastures, and to reap the rewards of peace that we have fought so long to secure for so many others. Today, we salute him, and we wish the wind be at his back.
May the Earthmother watch over you, and guide you all the days of your life.
We have honored the past, and now we will look towards the future. We have had more Recruits in the last months than we have had in the last years combined. The quality of our Recruits is astounding. I have high hopes for the future based on what I’ve seen in the past thirty days here.
Today we welcome those who have satisfied all the requirements for advancement to TAUREN MARINE, the most prestigious combat position and rank in the entire goddam Horde Army. Extremely few protectively seek out enlistment, and the work to make the rank of Marine. They join the ranks of the Few, the Proud, the TAUREN MARINES.
